Give Yourself a Tip

Take your own advise


If you still have Windows set up so that it shows a tip when you first sign in, you can add your own message, or change the ones the developers created.
  1. Go to start>Run and type in Regedit

  2. Find:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Tips]
    

  3. Create a new string value named by incrementing the existing value names and set it to the required tip text.

  4. The Data Type is REG_SZ (String Value)

  5. The Value Data: Your tip

Rename Files

Add Info


When you download pictures from your digital camera, they end up with incomprehensible name such as IMG_0284.JPG, or _MG_2640.CR2.

To make them more useful:



  1. Select all those files from Xmas. You can use Ctrl to group them, or use Ctrl+A to select all the files in that folder.

  2. Right click the selection and choose Rename.

  3. Pick a descriptive title, such as 2007 Xmas Party.

  4. Hit Enter

  5. All of the selected files will be renamed "2007 Xmas Party.JPG”, "2007 Xmas Party.CR2”, "2007 Xmas Party(2).JPG”, "2007 Xmas Party(2).CR2”, "2007 Xmas Party(3).JPG” "2007 Xmas Party(3).CR2”.

    The extensions will remain the same.

Change Info Box

Make up your own


When you press the Windows key + Break, you'll see the properties window with the standard manufactures data/ad.
The How to Geek shows how to change this. There is also a registry file that can be downloaded to make the basic entries.

Clippy the April Fool

An unwelcome visitor


"Clippy is a simulated office assistant that, when ran, will hide in the background for 1 minute then popup in the lower right hand corner of the screen and say something useless. Every minute, Clippy pops up spouting useless nonsense about your computer.

That is not all! Clippy comes with a dozen or so default messages, but Clippy can be customized to fit your needs. You can create a clippy.txt file within the same directory as Clippy and when loaded, it will read this file to figure out which hints to blurt to the screen.

Move your mouse pointer to the TOP LEFT corner of your screen. This will stop the program from running in memory. If you have successfully moved your mouse in the correct position, the program will close and display an About Box Screen. Once you close this screen, the program will exit. Exiting the software will allow Windows to delete the file."
